One of the biggest decisions that we have to make when fitting out any family bathroom is what to put on those walls. Many homeowners opt to use wall tiles, but is this really the best option? Wet walls and the use of bathroom splashbacks have grown in popularity during the last few years and we think that using bathroom splashback wall panels to create a wet wall has huge benefits for the family bathroom. Below we explore tile walls and bathroom splashback panels in more detail.

Mildew and mould

One of the biggest concerns in any family bathroom is the growth of mould and mildew. Wall tiles and grout will need regular cleaning with anti-fungal cleaner. Bathroom splashback wall panels are made with a protective coating that prevents the growth of mould and mildew, making them hygienically clean.

Maintenance and caring for your bathroom wall

We all lead busy lives, so we all like a bathroom that is quick and easy to clean. Cleaning wall tiles and the grout in-between them is time-consuming and does require some effort to keep it clean, while a bathroom splashback is quick and easy to clean with its smooth surface. Bathroom wall panels require very little maintenance and are stain resistant.

Installation issues

Bathroom wall tiles take time and effort to install, especially in a large family bathroom. In direct contract, bathroom splashback wall panels can be cut to your specific requirements, making them quick and easy to install. They can even be used on the ceiling.

Longevity of tiles versus bathroom splashbacks

Once we have spent time and money on our bathroom we want it to be durable and to last. Although tiles are durable and will stand the test of time, they can be easily cracked and are incredibly difficult to remove and replace. Bathroom splashback panels are equally long lasting and durable, but will also not mark or scratch with prolonged use.
